Land Between Lakes and Civil War travel blog


We stayed at Ft Boonesborough state park for 2 days. No free wifi, and several tv stations but they keep breaking up on us and so are pretty useless. The later at night, the more breaking up.

It was really hot. We had planned on going to see the fort-it is a recreation of the fort Daniel Boone built-but will save that for another trip when it is cooler. The first nite we ate at a really cute restaurant on a creek (the high water mark in the restaurant was about 10 feet up the wall and the creek was about 20 feet below the place when we were there). Outdoor seating is a bunch of interconnected decks arranged like tree houses (very Swiss Family Robinson like-Disney version). The food was great but we decided to eat in the ac.

We went to Perryville State Park to see the Civil war battlefield. It is still undeveloped so it is pretty much the way it was when the battle happened. We loved Lexington and plan to go back. They have almost 8 miles of trails with info along the way (20 or 25 stations-like an auto tour without the auto) You can access a lot of it by way of a gravel road (about 25%) so we did the road (hiking in 101 degrees isn't our idea of a vacation).

We really liked Lexington and plan to return when it is cooler.

Sorry-no pictures this stop.
